Lime Crime lipstick collection + Lip swatches!

July 20, 2014

I've been asked to do this since I first created heytherejacquelyn, but I've put it off... until now. I have eight Lime Crime lipsticks and I'm going to lip swatch them all for your enjoyment.





Coquette - Pale, peachy nude: When I placed an order for this lipstick it wasn't really what I expected. It came back darker and more brown toned than I thought it would be. I don't think it really is that peachy as they describe it as. Due to the darkness, I avoided using it for quite some time because I felt it didn't suit. However, nowadays I just pair it with a coloured gloss to alter the appearance. The consistency of this one is smooth and creamy. 

Cosmopop - Soft orange: This one is one of my favourites. I absolutely adore the colour. It is a pastel orange colour and I think it quite flattering, even on my pale skin. I use this one quite often although more like a subtle orange tint rather than a full pastel orange mouth. Application for this one is smooth and creamy as well. 

Great Pink Planet - Pastel pink with a neon note: This is definitely a bright pink. I also love this colour. With my pale skin, these colours look good and don't look crazy on me. I know some people find this hard to wear, but I honestly find it quite easy. Simple winged eye and this bad boy.

Airborne Unicorn - Medium purple with a neon note: I don't really think this is very neon. It is bright, but not like cray bright. I wear this one a lot suprisingly. I am loving my purples as I have said many times before. I get a couple strange looks when I use this one, but it's too pretty to resist. Smooth and creamy on application. 

Countessa Flourescent - Cool-based neon pink: This is like the older sister of Great Pink Planet. A little more mature and wearable... well, as wearable as a bright Barbie pink can be. This one is easier for people to wear because it is slightly darker, yet still packs a punch. Again, smooth and creamy. 

Centrifuschia - Bright fuschia: To be perfectly honest, I'm not the biggest fan of these types of fuschia colours. I don't know why, but I just don't find them flattering on me and extremely common on the market. I can't fault the formula but this one definitely isn't my favourite of the ones I own. 

Geradium - Coral-pink: This one is a definite Jacquelyn colour. The colour is beautiful. A coral however, supppper duper bright. It looks extremely flattering on my pale skin and I cannot resist these types of colours. Application is smooth and creamy... just like the rest of them.

Poisonberry - Berry purple: I don't mind this colour. I love purple like I said... but I don't like the formula of this one as much as the others. It's sheerer and not really a "creme" finish like the others I have. Because of the sheer type of formula, it tends to gather in my lip lines and look darker in those areas. I wish they would come out with a dark purple like this colour, except in creme finish. Would definitely snatch that one up!

No flash - same order as above

Flash - same order as above
Pros:
Smooth and creamy
Pigmented
Unique colours
Vanilla scent (drool!)
Relatively cheap in Australia! ~$20
Dat adorable packaging
Cons: 
Limited colour range - only 18 colours
Lasting power - couple hours max before reapplication
Mostly online, so hard to test products

Have you tried any Lime Crime products? I want to pick up Babette next, but everywhere I go to purchase is completely sold out! Frustrating.

    1. You should! They aren't crazy expensive in terms of Australian drugstore lipsticks!

  4. The colours and formula of these are all very hit and miss. I own all but 3 of the lipsticks and maybe 7 of them don't apply well at all. 5 of them aren't the same colour as what was advertised and the others are the colours I don't really want to wear.

    1. I've heard that! I find that all mine apply really lovely on my lips - apart from Poisonberry!
      I found that Coquette wasn't really like how it was advertised either though :(

  5. Lime Crime lipsticks are my favourite! I love the creamy formula and the pigmentation of the colours. Coquette is probably my favourite - it's the perfect nude for me (although they recently changed the formula which I'm so disappointed about)!

    I really want to try the Lime Crime velvetines next!

  7. Awesome post Jacquelyn! You have a killer collection! I only own Geradium but I love it and now you have made me want more!!! Where do you buy yours from? Is there any stores online that sell them for a decent price without a million dollars shipping to aus?

      I purchase mine from Beginning Boutique! They have a student discount and generally have discounts (AKA the Shaaaxo code) and have free shipping :)
